Default Merlin 90 2.5% turbine oil OK ?

Merlin manual recommends 2.5% 2T synthetic cycle oil.

Will 2.5% turbine oil also be OK?

Gaspar,

Yes you are correct. I was quoting my Rabbit specs.

You have answered my main question that either 2T cycle or turbine oil is OK for the Merlin.

Is one better than the other? Or is it the case that Merlin simply copes fine with either oil for lubrication?

Cheers,

Mav
